WHAT ARE YOUR REMEDIES FOR A VIOLATION OF THE DTPA?

The Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA) was enacted in 1973. Its primary purpose is to protect consumers from fraud, misrepresentations, and harassment by a businesses and insurance companies.  If you sought or acquired goods or services by purchase or lease and you believe the business misrepresented themselves or their product, engaged in misleading or harassment conduct then you may have DTPA claim.

Common examples of DTPA violations include:

  • Misrepresenting the condition of a product or service

  • Failing to disclose a problem with a good or service that, if known, would make a consumer decide not to purchase 

  • Representing used products as new

  • Indicating that an item that is in need of repair is not

  • False statements about the origin or manufacture of a good 

  • Other false or misleading statements or abusive activities or practices

  • Harassing phone calls

If successful on your claim, actual damages are available along with any reasonable attorneys fees. If the business knowingly or intentionally committed a violation treble damages may be available.
